74, thanks for pointing out the Turkey is a NATO Alliance member, I didn’t know that. This changes things very fast if Turkey attacks or gets attacked. The area may bring the beginning of WWIII because if NATO get in so will Russia.June 18, 2014 at 1:52 pm #16908

Totally agree, but it’s not coming from the USA.
Do not know, at the this point nothing is for sure, and all kind of combination and alliances, and surprises too are possible.June 18, 2014 at 2:28 pm #16915
Your are correct I retract my comment, anything might happen and suddenly.June 18, 2014 at 2:39 pm #16916
This thing with ISIS/Turkey build up is starting to sound very much like the times before and at the onset of WWI!

74, Israel remember when the Iraq war Bush had to hold the Israel from going into that war. I think this time no one is going to be able to stop Israel.June 18, 2014 at 3:14 pm #16923
Ya they will be in it as well and a bunch of others I left out.June 18, 2014 at 3:56 pm #16928
Once again we see the outgrowth of drawing imaginary lines on a map to define a country. In Iraq you have Sunni, Shiite, Kurds, and Turkman sects. Ready to wage war on their old enemies, each other. With the turmoil in Syria, the Iranians have to be very nervous. They lit the grease fire that is Syria, and now they have Iraq boiling over.
I agree with Freedom, if this becomes a regional war, Israel is going to act in it’s best interests. Does anyone seriously think that Israel is going to listen to Obama and Kerry. They knew they could trust Bush, but the latest polls show not even Americans trust Obama.
Latest reports say the ISIS have taken over Iraq’s biggest refinery. As someone else said, Gas will go through the roof, and inflation will not be far behind. We are already seeing a tremendous rise in food prices, without the new turmoil being factored in.
I wonder what Putin is thinking about all of this as he sits on his oil and gas reserves.June 18, 2014 at 4:07 pm #16929
The refinery is Iraq’s domestic source for oil. They are cutoff now, lights out.June 18, 2014 at 8:55 pm #16939
“I wonder what Putin is thinking about all of this as he sits on his oil and gas reserves”
I’m sure he is sitting by the sideline, waiting for the best time to take advantage of the situation.June 18, 2014 at 9:00 pm #16944
Oh yes, he is playing his cards right. Europe is in trouble because they will have no choice but to deal with Putin and will tell Obomor we are sorry but you are just not doing anything for us.June 18, 2014 at 9:59 pm #16947
It’s all like a Tom Clancy novel, isn’t it?
